Coming to the Norovember party

It's been Norovember for 20 days and I am just about to cast on my first Noro project for the month. This is not due to a lack of love for Noro, but because I have very little in my rapidly diminishing stash. I've got 100 grams of left over sock yarn in three different colour ways and this:

Which are the remnants from my mothers Adult Surprise Jacket. I bought the yarn in my first ever Webs purchase and my first ever Noro project, and I used 11 and a half balls for the ASJ. I think I bought 16 balls! I may have been over excited about buying Noro. I have been using the leftovers for various things ever since. Ravelry tells me that this is my sixth project using left overs. I don't love the colours, orange is more my mothers style than mine, but they are quite pretty, in that amazing Noro way.

I'm making the
Kalajoki socks, which is a free pattern I've had my eye on for ages. Also in celebration of Norovember I put in another Noro order at Webs. Hopefully I will receive that package before the end of the month, and I'll show you then, but I can assure you it's not 16 balls of Silk Garden, featuring orange as the dominant colour.
